But God

    While we were yet sinners... That is LOVE! knowing the mistakes we would make knowing the bad decisions we would make Knowing we would fight or ignore our hearts plea to go to Jesus knowing we would start on the narrow path but fall off or sit down or stray time and time again.  He still died for us.   This is the love we are to show the world.       It is a hard love. We are not used to  Loving our enemies, doing good to those who hate you,  blessing those who curse you, praying for those who mistreat you.   If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes...

Book Review Gideon Bible study by Priscilla Shirer

  Another winner By Mrs Shirer  I did this when it was offered by Lifeway. So got to get the video portions also for free.     The videos are powerful. and worth the money if you are taking on your own later.  It gave me a good start for each chapter.      Why did I decide to do this Bible study?  The front of the book says Gideon Your weakness God;s Stength.  The back says God can use your weakness.             And I have plenty of weak areas in my life.  I am in a season of overwhelm, feeling inexperienced with my shop and insufficient occasionally with my children and other areas.  So yes this was...

Tuesday Tunes Lead me by Janice Gaines

  Bringing this back especially since I found Spotify.    I should say that I have been aware of Spotify as it shows up as a bill but did not realize all that I was missing.   I wanted more variety in my music this definitely supplies it.  I believe music can do wonders for us.  Don't get me wrong nothing replaces the word of God. But music is an awesome way to get out of our heads and refocus on God.   It helps us praise and thank God as stated in the following verse.    It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord;...

Trust is key in the relationship with God (downloadable freebie)

  Ever seen my video where I say that I have created this shop out of a desire to create what I need to be a better mother, daughter, wife, teacher, sister, citizen, church member, volunteer, human being.   That is where the art prints got created.  I have signs in my home written with magic marker to encourage me.  I just wanted something that looked a lot better.  I think one of the first signs I created was  I needed to keep my self focused on doing what I was called to do even though it felt as if the life was being sucked out of me.   I needed to keep God's promise in front of me so I remember...

Training vs Trying which one is right for Christians?

I am not sure I ever consciously thought I am not good at this Christian thing I am just going to walk away.  But I did walk away.  I think because of several things, one is not knowing that this is a process and if I keep doing this in my strength I will not be able to do it.  But if I train with the Holy Spirit all things are possible.    Think about it when you are trying something new how much easier is it with a guide, a mentor, a helper, a comforter?   That is what the Holy Spirit is for us.  He comes alongside us and shows so much. We do not realize we must train...
